Lear, an ageing king of The Ryukyu Kingdom, decides to step down from his throne and divide the kingdom among his three daughters.
His older daughters Maushi and Manabe please the King by giving favourable words, but the youngest daughter Makato enrages her father with her discreet vow and gets disowned. Lear becomes dependent on his daughters but they betrays him. Lear wanders in the wilderness and slowly goes insane.
